Big Stacks Do Battle; Karakousis Takes the Chip Lead

[user101598] • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Georgios Karakousis

Georgios Karakousis opened to 60,000 from under the gun, Ludovic Geilich called on the button, and Martin Kozlov defended his big blind. The flop fell {3-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, Kozlov checked, Karakousis checked, and Geilich took the opportunity to bet 98,000. Only Karakousis called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs}, Karakousis check-called another 236,000 from Geilich, and a fourth diamond - the {6-Diamonds} - completed the board. Karakousis checked, Geilich immediately fired 498,000, and Karakousis check-raised all in.

Geilich jumped back in his seat, mulled the decision over for no more than 20 seconds, then folded.

"I had the king of diamonds," Geilich sighed.
